This child has the most toys I have ever seen to the point where it is almost ridiculous! Marc and I have bought him maybe a total of 5 toys in his lifetime because the grandparents spoil him rotten with toys. And what I do buy him comes from consignment sales. I just feel so guilty for seeing these toys sprawled out all over our house knowing that they're just for ONE child! We could take them all to Honduras and share them with about 100 children! I'm brainstorming ways of how Mason can share his toys one day with children who do not have any... Like starting some kind of toy drive or something! Hmm.... The wheels are a' turnin'!
The special Santa gift this year was the bright red retro kitchen! I had the most fun researching kitchens online and waiting for "the one" to arrive! Marc wasn't too sure about getting a kitchen for our son, but I mean, what's wrong with it?? Mason will be a wonderful cook someday just like his Papa Jack! Both of my parents cooked regularly growing up and I think that is so neat that some of my favorite recipes were given to me by my Dad! Mason absolutely adores his kitchen! It is hilarious. The second he saw it he started pilfering madly with all of those pots & pans and fake food. He just went to town like he knew exactly what he was doing! He has this serious look on his face and is the busiest little thang. The cutest little apron came with it, so we put that on him on Christmas Day and he played for hours in it.
We always spend Christmas Eve with my dad's side of the family. This year my brother & sis-in-law hosted so Marc, Mason, and I loaded up and headed down to Nashville for the evening. I'm sharing a few pics from that night, and then more posts to come of Mason's Christmas adventures!
